My parlour palm, which I got ~4 years ago (not necessarily my oldest plant but the one that has been in my possession the longest) has now grown from 6 inches to 17 inches! This is easily one of my most abused plants, it's one of the only in my room which I forget about when I water in my plant room so it's usually fairly dry (oops). It's also in its original pot (double oops). But apparently it's not too sad because it sent out flowers for the first time! (Or at least the first time I've noticed). Excited that it feels at least somewhat happy!

Great growing Brian! Your Parlor Palm (Chamaedorea elegans) looks very happy and healthy and I don't think you should change a thing!

I've been growing indoor and outdoor container plants for 50 years and over time, I've learned that whenever I purchase a new plant, it doesn't need to be immediately re-potted ... actually, it can live in it's original pot for quite some time!
